Life is nonlinear: Living the life in this particular universe is interesting because almost every natural phenomenon is nonlinear. It, thus, is inevitable that an inquisitive and self-aware mind would undertake the curiously adventurous journey of trying to understand the order and chaos in the nonlinear systems. But unfortunately, life is short and there are only twenty-four hours in each Earth-day. A mortal being cannot even dream of understanding each and every nonlinear phenomenon in the known and the unknown parts of the cosmos. Consequently, one has to compromise and patiently nibble into the gigantic and highly branched research area(s) of nonlinear dynamics. I try doing exactly that, and I am realizing more and more that my chaotic life is just a game!

My current research interest is primarily in some theoretical aspects of game theory: Exciting interdisciplinary topics of research in complex systems, such as evolutionary game dynamics, are very much in vogue. The concept of evolution is easily among the most revolutionary leaps in human understanding of nature. Evolutionary game dynamics lies right in the overlapping area of nonlinear dynamics, stochastic processes and statistical mechanics, game theory, and theory of evolution. For the last few years, I have been trying to understand the process of evolution through nonlinear dynamical systems. Some of my primary interests are: (i) correspondence between dynamical outcomes and the game theoretic equilibria, (ii) evolution of cooperation and fairness in evolutionary games, (iii) connection between population games in finite and infinite populations, (iv) eco-evolutionary dynamics and game theoretic dilemmas, (v) nuances of rationality, and (vi) overlap between the information theory and the game theory.
